Artist Biography:
Mary Gillis creates dramatic paintings on aluminum. Her "Great Lake Series", given its abstract nature, evokes the idea of the lakes as a whole and without reference to any one in particular. The artist chooses to neglect this specification as a means for one to see the lakes as a unified entity, reveling in the fresh water resource that surrounds her home state of Michigan.
